I looked some more online and found that they are simply grubs that can't eat any more. I found pictures (I don't know the link anymore) that had pictures of the white grubs next to the black grubs. So I was right in it being a grub. I hope the birds enjoyed it.

Should I worry about seeing a grub? I would think there are more since the fly tends to lay many eggs at once. Hopefully I can drown them up to the surface this week so they stop eating my roots.

How does one get rid of them without hurting the plants?

An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

I have no idea but I love your name for the topic!! LOL
If you find another one take a picture of it, that may help to get identification.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

I know what grubs look like, while fat caterpillar like worms, but today I found a black colored grub shaped worm in my pot that contains peas, beans and corn. I simply flipped it out of the pot and onto the roof below me (I had a really bad throw, I was trying to get it all the way to the ground, I missed, maybe a bird will eat it). I'm hoping no more are hiding in my pots. It didn't look like a cutworm, the pictures indicated a slimmer body with stripes, this one was one colored throughout with the shape of a grub. It curled up when I got it out of the pot, so still grub-like.

Can someone help me identify it and let me know if I should be finding more in that pot, I figure if there's one hiding, there probably are more. It's the first time I've seen something like this. I wonder if it's because I planted corn for the first time?
